After this trip, you’ll know Bangkok’s standout sites like the back of your hand. Once you’ve boarded an air-conditioned bus, you’ll head into the city’s Chinatown neighbourhood for the start of your panoramic tour. You’ll clock the Wat Traimit temple first of all, and will also pass the rainbow-like bouquets of the Flower Market. The grand city hall, the crimson Giant Swing and the royal Wat Suthat temple are all worth keeping an eye out for, and you’ll make your first photo stop at the ‘iron castle’ – Loha Prasat. This towering monastery was built for a princess in the 1800s, and its exterior is peppered with spiky black spires. Democracy Monument and the colourful Grand Palace are the next sights you’ll see, and you’ll also pass the Wat Pho temple, which is home to a huge reclining Buddha statue. Hop off for a photo at the Ananta Samakhom Throne Hall to round things off, then board the bus for the return journey.
This tour is designed to be easy on the legs and therefore the majority of your time is spent on the coach. The journey time is approximately 2 hours each way.
